I have about 50 tracks that I've selected to include in my RSS feed yet only 31 of them show on iTunes.

Hi there GLZ Radio,

I've looked into this for you, and your RSS feed currently has 31 episodes in it (when you put your RSS feed link into the address field of your browser and hit enter, you'll see the code of it. Searching for the term <item> will then reveal 31 results. One item stands for one episodes.

If you could provide me with the URL of one of two of your episodes that don't seem to be on iTunes, I can go and check from here what seems to be the issue.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
Cheers,
Mathis

They're both checked as "include in my RSS feed".

Hi again,

Thank you for following up on this one. Now, I've been able to look into this with one of our developers in more depth and they let me know that in order to ensure stability in our podcasting back end, only your 700 most recent tracks on SoundCloud will be included and show in your RSS feed. Since the tracks you referred to are over this limit, they don't show. If you uploaded them again to your profile, they would most likely show again on your RSS feed, yet with the sacrifice that other tracks would then not show any longer (i.e., the ones that are then the 701st, 702nd most recent uploads).

We're hoping we can grow this number in the future to ensure our users have all of their tracks included in their feeds, however for the moment being, this is the reason behind the issue and I hope I was able to shed some light on the issue for you.

Thanks for your patience while we figured this out for you.

All the best
Mathis

That's too bad. Is there a way to figure it out at least for our podcast for the time being until we find a different solution? If I re-upload my episodes I will probably lose all past stats etc.

We are trying to create custom feeds of our own using Python. Is there a way to get links to the tracks MP3's that we'll be able to use on our links. Links that will be permenant without client ID etc.

Thank you for the help
